Chart Industries has introduced a new LNG dispenser, developed by its subsidiary, Flow Instruments GmbH, a specialist in the development, engineering and production of accurate flow measurement systems, and Beta Control Ltd, the largest manufacturers of electronics for fuel dispensers in the Czech Republic. Chart describes the collaborative effort as indicative of current alt-fuel partnerships generating product in response to the world’s increasing demand for cleaner fuel.
The resultant product, LNG DYNAFLOW 3000® Dispenser, fuels heavy duty trucks and buses with LNG, reliably, accurately, safely and quickly. The dispenser meets all EU and MID regulations and is ATEX safety approved. A Dead-Man Button (DMB) means that filling can only commence when the DMB is depressed. Beta Control’s electronic calculator, ADP1/T-LNG, instructs customers during the dispensing procedure and incorporates additional features, including an alert to signal low LNG level in the station tank and an automatic cut-off when LNG is not available.
Chart says the system has already won approval from IVECO, SCANIA and VOLVO based on the driver’s experience – fuel, pay and drive-away, the same as for diesel.
The dispenser comes equipped with a quick-connect LNG nozzle and compressed air nozzle for cleaning of a truck’s LNG connection, and can be supplied as part of an LNG mobile or stationary fuelling station.
